Rep. Duncan Hunter argues his campaign filings are immune from prosecution

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, argued to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday that filing campaign finance forms is a legislative act -- immune from federal prosecution by constitutional separation of powers protections.

If his argument is successful, the case against him could ultimately be dismissed prior to trial thatís supposed to start Jan. 14 as Hunter prepares to run for re-election in a March primary election.

Hunter, 42, was indicted in August 2018 along with his wife and former campaign manager, Margaret, on 60 federal counts of misusing campaign funds and covering up the crimes.

The two were accused of living well beyond their means by spending money from political donors on family vacations, dental work, private school tuition, fast food, groceries and other expenses. The congressman also was accused of spending the funds on extramarital affairs.

2. Just a hunch, this fool crook's argument won't work. Good try though.

Maybe if he hadn't spent thousands on affairs with other women he may be afforded a break, but since he did...
